Event Synopsis:
Under 28 U.S.C. Section 1782, U.S. federal courts are authorized to order or withhold discovery “for use in a proceeding in a foreign or international tribunal.” However, due to the existing disparity in arbitral proceedings, discovery assistance proceeds with varying conclusions among circuit courts. As a result, debates continue to emerge on the use of Section 1782, considering the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests given to private entities in collecting evidence for foreign arbitrations.

With the emerging trends and developments in managing foreign disputes, lawyers and practitioners should always be equipped with the best practices and strategies to address these issues and challenges.

Speakers, among other things, will offer helpful insights on how to successfully manage foreign or international disputes in light of the rapidly evolving legal climate.
